Danbooru

Create alias pc-98_(style) -> pc98

Posted under Tags

Moved post #3574967 manually. We don't need a bulk update for a tag that has been used exactly one time in the past ~20 years of Danbooru's existence.

That said, it would probably be better if both pc98 (the graphics style) and pc-98 (the computer itself) were moved to tags with qualifiers; there's no way to know which tag is which without reading the wiki.

Definitely agreed. Something like PC-98 (style) and PC-98 (computer) would probably work best, based on current qualifiers. Also something to note, both tags have Other Names, but looking at their Pixpedia entries, PC-9801 (which the latter uses) is just a redirect for pc-9800 (which the former uses). Having qualified tags means we could easily put all the relevant PC-98 tags in each tags's Other Names, and have an easier time being able to tell which tag is which.

Though I've always found it odd that the tag for the computer is just that, when the predecessor is tagged under NEC PC-8801.

Yeah that was kinda stupid of me to make this. Thought that aliasing did something completely different not something that could be solved by a simple edit my bad.

Another thing to take care of is the translated tags. pc-98 has "pc-9801" in it (and pc98 had the empty pixiv tag "pc-9800" which I removed). Does that tag on pixiv apply to both? In that case it should go into both and it should be up to the uploaders to decide where it applies (or at least that's how it usually goes, though I'm not very confident the more empty headed users won't just add both tags).

It's used for both on Pixiv, although the artstyle makes up most of it. I've added it to pc98 and will keep an eye on both tags, but I'm not expecting many mistags given how niche both are.
